The success of a school rests upon the success of its graduates. They are ambassadors who, through their professional and personal achievements, bring honour to their alma mater. At CEIBS, alumni represent our most valuable asset and are permanent members of the big CEIBS family. The Alumni Association acts as an important channel to serve these stakeholders and tap into this resource. The Association brings together graduates and industry leaders through organised events such as seminars, workshops, and reunions as well as a range of alumni clubs. Activities organised by the Association allow alumni to update their management knowledge, share experiences and insights, create business opportunities, maintain friendships, and pursue career development.

CEIBS boasts the largest alumni network among business schools in mainland China. At the end of December 2016, the school's Alumni Association represented over 19,000 alumni of CEIBS and its predecessor CEMI, and increases its roster by roughly 1,500 fresh graduates yearly. Alumni form a very strong element of the school community, and play a variety of roles in the development of the school. So far, the Alumni Association had established 65 regional chapters in China and beyond. Meanwhile, there are 65 alumni clubs that cater to alumni's personal interests and career focus.
